Red Velvet Gooey Cake

June 6, 2013


This is my 8th gooey cake recipe. As you can see, it mainly just involves switching up the cake flavor on the bottom, but I won’t tell anyone it is that easy if you don’t tell! I thought about making a red velvet version for a while, and I have to admit it was destined to be a gooey cake. Red velvet on the bottom, cream cheese filling on top…why would I ever waste my time making a red velvet cheesecake layer cake or red velvet cupcakes again? Don’t worry, I will eventually go back to the real thing but for right now this gooey cake is perfect.

Red Velvet Gooey Cake


  • 1 package red velvet cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 sticks of butter – melted separately
  • 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 box (16oz) powdered sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix with 1 stick melted butter and 1 egg. Press into the bottom of a greased 13×9 cake pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl (I always use the same one that I just did the cake mix in without cleaning it) beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Mix in 2 eggs, 1 stick melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture on top of cake mix crust and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Will still be ever so slightly unset in middle when done.
